Boulder, Colorado Speed Traps
Boulder cruiser with radar likes to park in the church parking lot beaming eastbound traffic. It’s right past a wooden fence with a lot of trees so they’re not easy to spot. Limit is 45 which isn’t too bad, but its easy to get off US 36 and forget to slow down a little.
After you get off of US 36 and go about fourth a mile down Foothills Parkway, going North, there might be a speed trap. It is usually between noon and four that they have it up. Some times the police would rent a U-Haul van to place in front of them so you can’t see the cop cars. There would also be a police officer up on the pedestrain walkway above Foothills with the radar gun. After the U-Haul there would be about three cop cars waiting to pull over people. The speed drops from 65mph on US 36 to 45mph on Foothills. A great place to catch motorists that are just coming off the highway and still doing the same speed. Very clasic speed trap!
